Trail of Evidence Discussion

rasck on Talrand Mass Polymorph Combo

From your list it looks like a quite competetive meta you are in. So my suggestions might be off as im used to a very casual meta. You could try to get more cards that can put combo pieces back into the deck
Glimmer of Genius --> Dream Cache
Frantic Search or Radical Idea --> Amass the Components
Maybe Teferi can help you a bit with sorting cards and then give gas wheen needed
Trail of Evidence --> Teferi, Temporal Archmage

Turnabout Can also give a lot of gas or be used to get you out of a tricky situation

In my deck i have some token generators to replace Talrand if he get's hated. I think they might be too slow for you, but anyway here goes: Metallurgic Summonings, Stolen by the Fae (really wish it was instant...) and Rise from the Tides

I really like this thematic and I think you did a cool job building around it! :)

My first advice is that Estrid neither synergizes with your deck mechanically or, to my knowledge, thematically. Consider swapping her around and making Chulane your leader, since your deck seems to have more focus on ETB and card draw/land drops. Alternatively, Roon of the Hidden Realm seems like he would fit thematically and enhance your ETB effects.

Some more cards that seem like they'd fit your thematic and be useful: Timestream Navigator , Path of Discovery , Curious Obsession , Perilous Voyage , Chart a Course , Thaumatic Compass  Flip, Dowsing Dagger  Flip, Treasure Map  Flip, Ongoing Investigation , Trail of Evidence , Map the Wastes

Some win con ideas: Avenger of Zendikar flickers well and works great with all your landfall triggers, White Sun's Zenith , Blue Sun's Zenith , or Entreat the Angels all give you places to dump your mana, Rite of Replication can be used to similar effect on one of your bigger guys or to get more ETB, Laboratory Maniac or the WotS Jace could let you try to win by decking yourself out with all your draw/land digging. Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper and the various awaken cards from Zendikar could also work if you want to make your excess lands into beaters. Vigor would also be a strong win-con for your deck.

Hope this helps!

duve86 i'm not feeling it.. losing Trail of Evidence really hurts artifact creation. but it makes me want to build an eldrazi/treasure deck...

Darksteel Citadel is a good call. I don 't care for Wild Slash , i won't have many big creatures. Spite of Mogis fits better i think. Bomat Courier seems nice at first, but i'm not expecting to be very agro and he's going to lose his ability to rebuild my hand come turn 3 at the latest. and i'm not sure what i'd take out to add him. the Ghostfire Blade is tempting to protect the Kaboomist from himself, but that would be its only purpose.

I'd gone Izzet specifically so i could get Trail of Evidence and make Saheeli easier to cast. but i really like that devil... probably going to copy this deck and build it around that change and compare.

You should play:

Chain of Vapor Narset, Parter of Veils , Mental Misstep Merchant Scroll Sai, Master Thopterist Arcum's Astrolabe Trail of Evidence ...literally anything that can consistently crap out artifact tokens Mirrodin Besieged

Why are you playing: Kozilek, Butcher of Truth is this just for the shuffle? Lux Cannon this is a win more card...you supposedly already have 2 artifacts so its better to play literally anything else and just activate urza Heartstone if you have infinite mana anyways then this card is a waste of your time Expedition Map ? you have perfect mana anyways is pumping 2 mana into this to grab like academy ruins the best use of mana?

why so many wincons? like you don't need chalice, aetherflux, lux cannon, and Jace. Its better to focus on 2ish combos, because your wincons are dead draws until you have the combo...I suggest Jace and Aetherflux because they dont require dramatic scepter just infinite mana and or a deck.

onehitterquiter aww water dogo is cool and would work very well with 'rix and some cards that used to be in the deck ( Trail of Evidence , Mystic Speculation ) but he is sadly not a BIG fish :(

I know you're looking for non-wheel card draw. I don't love cantrips in EDH unless there is a number-of-spells-matters effect in play but they can smooth out a deck a bit. Ponder , Preordain , Portent , Sleight of Hand , Serum Visions , etc. The sweet spot in around 3-5 CMC for me, ideally drawing CMC -1 but there aren't a ton of spells that efficient. I don't love Divination in EDH (2 for 3) but it's the gold-standard in 60-card decks for a quickie hand refill. There are tons of efficient cards like Divination too.

There are a ton of "draw 3, discard 1" for 4 or 5 mana, which are okay. Sift , Trial of Knowledge , and Amass the Components , for example. Many are costed for being commons, which isn't where you wanna be in EDH. There should be plenty of good, efficient cards to draw from though. At the same time, you have a lot of great high-CMC draw, like Consecrated Sphinx and Thought Reflection, so having a few Divination effects might smooth out your draws.

Some suggestions: Concentrate , Windfall , Cathartic Reunion , Plea for Power , Tidings , Nin, the Pain Artist , Finale of Revelation , Mind Spring , Braingeyser , Stroke of Genius , Blue Sun's Zenith , Fact or Fiction , Chart a Course , Ugin's Insight , Treasure Cruise , Dig Through Time , Kumena's Awakening , Fevered Visions , Honden of Seeing Winds , Reverse Engineer , Read the Runes , Precognitive Perception , Distant Memories , Arcane Encyclopedia , Endless Atlas , Trail of Evidence , Theft of Dreams , Borrowing 100,000 Arrows , Nezahal, Primal Tide , Kefnet the Mindful , Cavalier of Gales , Combustible Gearhulk , Thassa, God of the Sea , Shared Discovery , Secrets of the Golden City , Vivisection , Weight of Memory , Recurring Insight , Breakthrough , Niv-Mizzet, Parun , Deep Analysis , Gush , Invoke the Firemind , Expansion / Explosion , Chandra, Flamecaller , Dragon Mage , Wild Guess , Tormenting Voice , Arch of Orazca , Runehorn Hellkite , Conqueror's Galleon  Flip, Kraum, Ludevic's Opus , Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist , Commune with Lava .

Hissp looking at the build it seems casting tutor mages may be too slow, other than Fabricate all other tutor options put scepter/engine into play. All the tutors other than Tezzeret the Seeker create a clue off Trail of Evidence , and tezz is too strong not to run. Finally the deck has no way to utilize the body of the mages other than blocking tymna etc. T

TLDR The mages are low tempo low synergy.
